This is exactly what I saw. Basically it was an article describing
the installation of this kit.

I've heard some of the Japanese mini-truck tanks fit well too. I've
been digging around looking for the article and I can't seem to find it

I can't speak for anyone else, but I am not to fond of sitting right in
front of gasoline bomb waiting to go off. Personally I would feel safer
with the gas tank located else where, in case of an accident. Plus I would
like to use the room for some serious stereo speakers.

Content-Type: text/plain;

Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

I need the advise and hopefully the help of the group. I have a 1996
Ranger 4x4 that my wife and I show every weekend and I also drive it daily.
The problem I have is with the front suspension. I have a 6" Skyjacker
Softride Suspension Lift with Skyjacker Hydro shocks at all four corners.
The front coil springs seemed to have sagged a little and now the front of
the truck once again rides lower than the back. But the major problem
seems to be coming from the coil springs and what looks like an
interference with the steering arms. Every time I make a right hand turn,
the steering arms rub the springs and makes one hell of an awful noise.
Does anybody out there know how to correct this problem? I was going to
insert coil spring booster bushings like they use in NASCAR, but the
springs need to be forced apart to insert them. I tried lifting the truck
and letting the front axle hang to insert the rubbers, but the springs
still need to be forced apart. Please help, and thank you.

Exactly. I have lap belts and would like to put in a shoulder harness
setup. As the '64 has no good place to do this, I figured I good rig
something that would work if I removed the tank - and a little storage
wouldn't hurt.

Thanks for the idea on the panel truck tanks - I'll start looking
around...

I have recently aquired a 1969 F-100. This truck has a 1971 400 cubic inch
motor in it, which needs work. I have found out that the original engine
was a 360 cu. in. motor (info from the data tag).

What I would like to know is did the 400 come in 69 F-100's as an option?

This truck also has a C-6 transmission, does anyone know if this was also
an option in 69 F-100's?

I'm trying to decide if the time and money is worth putting into the 400
and C-6 or should I just find a 360 and trany to match??

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

A few days ago someone posted a question about C5 transmissions. They
are upgraded C4's with a lockup converter and a different valve body to
operate the lockup converter. They have a revised input shaft for
better oil flow and some revised internal components for strength. You
can identify one by the letters PEA on the transmission case
indentification tag, by the longer bellhousing (to accomodate the larger
lockup converter), and by a deeper (about 2") pan (to accomodate the
larger valve body).

If the person that has the C5 is interested in selling it, please
contact me.

The 400 did not come as an option back then, it's somebody's transplant.

The 360 is an ok engine and if you get the right carb/cam setup you can get
plenty of snot out of it. However, the "stroked" version of the 360, being
the 390, has WAY more power, torque, and gets about the same mileage. You
ought to find yourself a 390, build it, and drop it in.

Forget the 400.

Hey.

I dunno if your frame rails are as far apart as mine, but I do know that
67-76 are the same. On later-model rangers, the second tank was located
behind the rear wheels, and on earlier-model ones, in front of the rear
wheels.

If you only have one tank now, why not just install the ranger tank under
the bed, and remove the in-cab tank?

i don't know if the 400 was an option, but if originality is not a =

and really doesn't give any less fuel mileage. cubic inches are good in =
such a heavy vehicle. if you can find one, 427 or 428 are good, but =
much rarer, and did not come in trucks. other FE motors, such as the =
352, 406 and 410 are good choices also. some of these moters came with =
4bbl.
bottom line, use what works for you - for me, a 390 is the easy choice, =

is about the same as a 460 in wieght. the 400 has the least aftermarket =

I haven't removed the tank in the cab but I do have a second tank and
could do so. I built my second tank for stainless it has (basically)
the same foot print as my toolbox and is about 8 or 9" deep. I painted
my spare tank black and the filler is a 2" pipe with a threaded cap on
top of it, it sticks up about 12" above the bottom of the box and it's
all on the inside of the box. 60 gallons of fuel centered in the middle
of the truck and invisible if you aren't aware it's there.

Tomorrow and Wednesday they are going to give my wife medication

If you go to our web page you'll see the current design for the
"static cling" window sticker I have in the works for our list
members. Its now the title graphic for the page until I come up
with something better. http://www.ford-trucks.com

If you want to see the full size (and much cleaner/sharper)
version point your browser to:

http://www.ford-trucks.com/sticker2.gif

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I'll announce pricing and
availability soon. Price will be cost + $1/$2 with the extra going
to the list "prudent reserve" account to cover our list costs. Anyone
who has donated will receive a sticker unless the cost turns our to be
enormous (I doubt it, I think they'll cost about a $1 each to make).
This is **not** intended to be money-maker and I don't expect high
quantity sales. Rather, it is the first step towards becoming a true
club/organization. Ford is sending me information about other clubs.
As always, the list will be free and we'll fund ourselves through
donations or items similar to the stickers. When we become a club in
the true sense I'm going to have to "share the reins" concerning the
club yet I'll still handle the day-to-day admin of the list/web site
(due to the nature of it its not a very sharable job). More on this later.

Thanks everyone! By weeks end we'll have over 700 members - still
working on a group purchase program with a few vendors. So far the best
deal offered is a 7% discount, trying for 10%.

Could you do me a favor and run a tape measure between your frame rails and let me know what the distance is so I can compare it to my 66.

Thanks !

Hey.

I dunno if your frame rails are as far apart as mine, but I do know that
67-76 are the same. On later-model rangers, the second tank was located
behind the rear wheels, and on earlier-model ones, in front of the rear
wheels.

If you only have one tank now, why not just install the ranger tank under
the bed, and remove the in-cab tank?

Clifford is a good choice if they have the parts.
They recently built an engine for a friend of mine. It's a Chevy (sorry) 2.8L
brought up to about 3.6L and puts out close to 300HP and is streetable. Not
too shabby.....
